You may be asking yourself, “What’s up with the bright pink border here and the ribbon in the header graphic?”
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So Phoenix Real Estate Guy will be sporting pink for the month.
Breast cancer sucks. It is the most common cancer in women in the United States (men can get it too!) and about 178,000 women were found to have invasive breast cancer in 2007 — almost 500 per day, every day. Over 40,000 die from it every year.
What can you do to help? Research takes money, and lots of it. Awareness helps. As with most forms of cancer, early detection is key. Self exams and mammograms are the key players in early detection. If you are reading this and you are female, stop reading right now and go do a self-exam.
Don’t have any money? Can’t run? Volunteer some time. Write a blog post. Do something to help stop this insidious disease.
